My Chemical Romance, ‘Bulletproof Heart’ – Song Spotlight
My Chemical Romance make plans to escape town on their new single ‘Bulletproof Heart.’ The song appears on their 2010 semi-concept album ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’ and is the follow-up to their recent No. 1 song ‘Sing.’
‘Bulletproof Heart’ is a typically extravagant, dramatic and most importantly, catchy pop-punk anthem about escape from some undefined restrictive presence. Whoever the “pigs” the narrator is running away from are isn’t clearly explained in this song (the album concerns a group of rebels fighting an evil corporation called Better Living Industries) but motive hardly matters when the chase sounds like this much fun. I mean, come on, they get lasers, how cool is that?:
“I got a bulletproof heart / You got a hollow point smile / We had our run away scarves / Got a photograph dream on the getaway mile / Let’s blow a hole in this town / And do our talking with the laser beam.”
My Chemical Romance, who had the aforementioned single ‘Sing’ covered on ‘Glee’ recently, start a US tour on March 31 in Oakland, California. They’ll travel all across the country and back again before winding up in Las Vegas on May 29.
